Visit The Great River Road Steamboat Museum

This expansive museum educates visitors about life on the Mississippi, exploring the culture, commerce, folklore, and music. Once you’ve completed this attraction, save time to walk across the bridge located in the parking lot to enjoy sweeping views of the Mississippi River and the surrounding landscape. Allow at least 4 hours for this visit to both Houmas House and The Great River Road Museum.

Houmas House Historic Estate

This historic estate boasts 38 acres of the South’s most beautiful gardens, three restaurants, a luxurious inn, and a historic mansion open daily for tours. The guided mansion tour leads you through the architectural evolution of the mansion and details how a succession of owners and the Mississippi River grew this manor house into the grand estate it is today.

Period antiques, artwork, and artifacts help the costumed guides tell the story of plantation life. Once sprawling over 300,000 acres, Houmas House has survived wars, floods, abandonment, and the test of time. Spend the day or night and experience the Antebellum South. Once you have explored the Houmas Estate, visit The Great River Road Steamboat Museum.

What to Wear

We suggest that you wear comfortable shoes. High heels are not recommended as the property is quite expansive. In the summer months, our climate is very warm. We suggest cool, comfortable clothes. Our winters are mild, but occasionally it does get cold, so please be prepared. The mansion, restaurants, gift shop, and museum are all centrally air-conditioned and heated.
